Coding work has been slow to nonexistent as we are spending almost all of our spare time getting this house ready for the market. We are almost there now. The more we get done, the more the wife is starting to like the house and is reconsidering the whole moving idea :lol: ... We'll see.

Started putting the house back together after all the painting, carpet cleaning, organizing, throwing out unused stuff, etc. Have my laptop and working area back up. I started importing the item editor code into the Xamarin version. I'm about half way through all the property input code adjustments to xamarin.

I am glad to hear that the bulk of the house dressing work is behind you. Still keeping fingers crossed for you here. I have alot of Xamarin work ahead, too, once next IB beta is out (first will likely be to figure out how to increase performance, ie take pressure from the draw routines and put more stuff into the update cycle only).

Finished the item editor for Xamarin. I think all the major parts are now in place for IBbasic (engine and in-app toolset). I'll need to do a lot of testing and polishing I am sure. I probably will need to add a few features that were pushed off, but will still need to be implemented (such as intelligent entry suggestions for some properties). Also, I would like to add the pixel art creation tool to the in-app toolset so that builders can load and edit existing artwork or create their own from scratch all within the app toolset.

Looking forward to drawing pixels from the very same place that the adventure is build from, feels cohesive and very polished to me :) . Also, saving the art created in the right place might become much easier/automated.

Happy birthday Pongo! And happy moving, Slowdive. :) Having just done it myself, I sympathize.

Thanks guys, and happy birthday Karl!

Congrats on the move, Slowdive. I'm just house hunting for a move back to the UK in summer, I feel your pain! :)

Looking forward to getting my hands on IBBasic - good work!
